About Venus

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Venus. I have been an animal lover since I was a young child, always finding a stray to help. My family consists of two daughters (also animal lovers) my husband, Mike and myself. Mike and I met at a dog park in San Francisco 8 years ago, thanks to our two love connection puppies, Waffle who recently passed (14 years old) and Jasper my retired therapy dog (18 years old) who is no longer with us.

Your dog will not go a minute without love and fun! Some dogs need a run, not a walk... I am your gal (I am always training for a half or full marathon)! I will see what your dog is comfortable with and take them for a jog or walk.

I have always had animals--dogs, cats, fish even birds. Prior to living in the OC, I volunteered at Austin Pets Alive as part of their dog running program. And dog handler program.

Thank you for the opportunity to love your fur baby.

Venus was such a great host and we felt completely comfortable with our dog in her care.
Venus was absolutely amazing. She made our pup feel right at home...so much so that he was sad to leave! Highly recommended.
Venus was a great host for our two pups. They stayed with her for 8 days and she kept me up to date with text messages, pictures, and videos. I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing our fur kids were in good hands. I would use her again for another stay and recommend her to others.

Teo loves to visit Waffle! Venus keeps Teo busy all day or I should say Teo keeps Venus busy all day. Our lab mix gets so excited the moment we drive through gate to The Hills. It takes him a little while to settle in from all of the excitement and when he gets home he sleeps well after all the activity. Thank you Venus you have been a life saver!!! I know when I drop Teo off I have nothing to worry about while we are out of town.

Lola came home with a tiara after being treated like the princess she thinks she is!!! Venus and her family loved and cared for Lola like their very own pet and we received photos and videos of their time together. This was our first time to leave Lola with anyone other than family...now Lola feels as though she has another family to love and enjoy!! Thank you, Venus, for all the TLC and for helping us to have a worry free vacation!

Venus took such amazing care with our dog Ronin while we were away. She even took him for runs which is one of his favorite things. What was really nice was receiving update texts from Venus with photos. Some texts had a movie style to it with background music, it just made us so happy to see Ronin enjoying his time at her place. Ronin had a blast with her dog too, Waffles. He plays great with other dogs. I absolutely recommend Venus as a dog sitter for your dog, I know we will definitely be using her service again!

Venus' caring attention and daily runs with our pup were so special. Complete with photos! Venus was so responsive, and her home is a gorgeous puppy retreat and the family was wonderful. We live in South Austin, so I wish she were a little closer in to town. But we will DEFINITELY be scheduling with Venus again for any doggie day care. Just wonderful.

Venus was fantastic! Our dog loved her, her family, and of course Waffle. She was very accommodating to our shifting schedules for pick up and drop off. We would definitely recommend to anyone!
Awesome! Our dogs have now spent a month total with Venus over the last six months and we have traveled each time having a great sense of security and peace of mind knowing they were both in loving hands.
She is golden and we are blessed to know Venus and her family. Also to have her care for our dogs. They arrived for their second week stay in two months wagging their tails for and left doing the more of the same. We take them back in a week for their third one week stay.

Hands down, the best experience. Venus' kindness towards Harley made leaving him so much easier. Harley came home so relaxed. I am so glad that I discovered this service.
Teo had a great time playing with his friends!!!
Our fuzzy kids fit right into Venus's family (fuzzy and regular). We got periodic updates on how they were doing.
Absolutely Pawsome! Venus was just the best with the both of our dogs. She spoiled them both rotten and I am pretty sure they didn't deserve it. She has two large dogs of her own that are about the nicest well mannered dogs I have ever been around. She kept in touch with me about how our dogs were adjusting to their new environment (eating, sleeping, exercising, etc.) while we traveled by texting cute photos of both the dogs. Her home was beautiful and she treated our dogs like royalty. I feel very fortunate to have found such a darling loving person to care for our two dogs (adopted children). I felt like we could relax on our vacation and not be worried about our dogs. Venus is a true animal lover and wonderful caregiver.

We are thrilled - Venus was an absolutely wonderful host.She provided fantastic care to our dog. The pictures and texts relieved our anxiety. Thanks!
Venus and her family (both furry and non-furry!) were amazing and wonderful companions while we were away. I was so surprised to receive adorable photos from places they took Taco - from a small creek and park area, to a family outing to Fredericksburg! Venus is definitely our shy Tacos "second mommy"...which is saying a lot, we'll be back!
